I didn't read the article, but do Phish recordings need someone like Charlie to do anything to them? They were probably recorded on DAT from the beginning and there are probably only about ten years during the beginning where some people recorded on cassette and the rest will be digital recordings.

Let's not forget that our friend does a lot more than just adjust speed & other analog-y things...

Thanks Again to Charlie,
& God Bless,

Phish stopped allowing sbd recordings of shows sometime around 1995-1996? Thus - much of what circulates is audience recordings of varying quality. Phish has been slow to release archival recordings from this era. so - yes there is a need for Charlie's work.

But how much does it vary in quality? I haven't listened to as much Phish as I have the Grateful Dead, but I've got some unlistenable crap from the GD on tape as well as cd but I haven't heard a Phish recording that was even close to that bad (other than bad acoustics hurting it, but can Charlie do anything with that?). I was into Phish from 1993-97 and that's all I have and have heard, and I don't recall any recordings needing the Charlie Miller treatment.

Phish recordings definitely can't be compared to Dead recordings from back in the day. The technology has certainly improved. But their are plenty of shows that could use some Miller TLC. One that comes to mind for me would be 12/30/99 (first night of Big Cypress). Awesome show but even "remastered" versions of this show leave much to be desired.
